Normally Austin would have posted to his blog today but we are having internet security issues with the kids computers so he stayed off internet today. He did spend some time with the paint program though, making some designs to post when he can.
He also read a chapter from Pinocchio.
Our youth pastor picked him up around lunchtime today and they went out to lunch together. This was something that Austin has been looking forward to for a couple weeks now and he really enjoyed it.
Amanda started reading a new book today - The Cross and the Switchblade by David Wilkerson. Once again I think she was surprised at how much she enjoyed the book I picked out for her. She also read some from Cats by Amanda O'Neill.
She spent some time playing Solitaire and Spider Solitaire.
After school her friend Holly (age 11) was here for awhile and the girls had fun together.
This evening she put up some wall decorations in the playroom.
Austin and Amanda
We read two chapters from The Shack by Wm. Paul Young this afternoon. We also read 2 Kings 8:7-15, 25-29 and 2 Kings 9.
Both kids did their daily chores, helped with the younger kids and took care of their pets.
